    Herm Sprenger Revolving Hole Punch is rated 4.9722 out of 5 by 72.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy! Thought about a cheaper punch from Home Depot, but after reading reviews here, this seemed the way to go. Have had it a couple of weeks. What fun to use - even my 11-yr old daughter can easily punch holes through her horse gear. Wish it weren't quite so expensive, but expecting to get years use out of it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOOOO easy! My mom has notoriously weak hands, so I was in the market for an easy-to-use hole punch that even she could manage. I found it! Even my little sister can use it, without a problem. I got it engraved, and it looks so much more professional than our usual blue tape labeling!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny This hole punch is a little pricey, but definitely worth it. Punches a clean hole in everything I've tried so far...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dont settle for cheap imitations! Dont waste your money on the cheaper, hardware store version of this hole punch. Even a weakling like me can use it easily! Makes nice clean holes with very little effort. Worth the extra cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only hole puncher worth buying Ok, it is a little pricey. Thats actually what took me so long to order one. I couldn't imagine a hole punch being worth $50, but let me tell you, it is.First of all, it actually punches the holes. No struggling, twisting, pulling, or hiring a weight lifter, to punch a hole in my leathers. Second, the it punches the holes very cleanly. Third, its super easy to use and to get the desired hole size.This is one of those items that is just worth having even with the price. It is a fantastic tool to keep around my barn and in my trailer.I would hands down buy another one, and I will recommend them to my friends.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Use Easy to use - definately takes less pressure to punch a hole (versus the less expensive brands). A bit pricey.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Need This Every barn should have two pairs. Inevitably, they will magically sprout legs and escape, so you'll want to have a back-up. This is my third pair and I was happy to pay a little more to have SmartPak engrave them - thank you SmartPak! These punches allow even a child to pop a hole through very thick leather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should have bought this the first time! I have gone through several of the various cheaper hole punches. I should have bought this one the first time. It is absolutely worth every penny! The holes actually revolve from small to large unlike the others and it is easy to get the hole exactly where you want it since it doesn't slip when you punch the hole.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hole punch! No regrets Very easy to use, even for small hands. Easy glide action. Would recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money Well Spent I would pay twice the price for this hole punch. It cuts cleanly and quickly through any leather without slipping and tearing. Minimal force required. Best hole punch ever!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sprenger hole punch This hole punch is so easy to use, even on the thick saddle leather. And because it's so easy everyone wants to borrow it. That is why I was happy to see that you offer engraving. Now my name is stamped onto the handle and the punch can't be accidently stuck in someone elses tack box. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the second one I purchased I bought this for my trainer for Christmas. I have had one for 10 years and she borrowed it at nationals and LOVED it! The mechanics of this punch make it it easy for a woman with small hands or a person without a lot of strength to punch through thick leather. The punch is very well made and will out last several cheaper ones, so it is a real value even though it is slightly pricey.When the trainer got hers she immediately HID it from everyone else in the barn! This is the ONLY punch I will ever buy when it is time to replace the ten yr old one I own!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellence revisited This is by far the best, easiest to use hole punch available. The only thing I would have changed was getting my name engraved so it stays in my possesion!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! Owned several pair of punches in the past. These area better than any others I have ever had. They are so easy to use, there is no twisting or punching several times.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOOOOO Worth Splurging!!! I have wanted to buy this hole punch for as long as I can remember but held off because of the price tag. Then my old hole punch exploded and I decided to go for it. UNBELIEVABLE. No more stomping on the lever of my hole punch and turning it over and over to make a ratty hole on my brand new leather tack. One punch...DONE. Every horseperson should have one of these- a pleasure to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, solid punch. It is pricey, but it works great. Well-balanced. Customization engraving is kind of crude, but it isn't jewelry, so it's not a problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the Price So I bought this hole punch thinking that I just made a really silly impluse buy spending that kind of money on a hole punch...wrong! Super easy to punch a hole with, considering I just bought it I cannot speak to how hardy it is, but I am sure that it will hold up to the Sprenger name. I actually made my husband drive me all the way to the barn on a night out to punch a new hole in my belt with it! You will not be dissapointed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from no need for a killer hand shake! My old hole punch broke. I was hesitant to replace it with this one because of the price but I am happy I did. While I'm no wimp, my hand strength is not great and, using this punch, I was able to put 12 holes in my stirrup leathers in a matter of minutes. And, they look great - just like the factory installed holes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Herman-Sprenger hole punch I ordered this hole punch and then attempted to cancel the order the next day. I started thinking how insane it was to spend $49 for a hole punch. How many holes did I punch in a year. The lady at Smartpak said I'll really like it, so I kept my order. Today I used it. It is such an incredible hole puncher. I decided it's well worth the money. My horsey daughter and horsey grandson will inherit this item because I believe it will last at least a 100 years.Dee Laine

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best leather punch ever made This punch is the best ever made. It punches through effortlessly, cleanly and with no compression of the surrounding area. Incredible value - I would pay three times as much for this punch if I needed another.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Herm Sprenger hole Punch I received this hole punch as an exchange for one I had purchased from Smartpak. They contacted the manufacturer and got my defective hole punch replaced. Excellent customer service!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Satisfied Customer - Saved Money The punch is world class. Having lost much weight, I ordered the punch and used it to put more holes in 16 belts. It cost me $8 to get one belt done at a cleaners. So, I saved $128 minus the cost of the hole punch. Wow, the punch is top quality and should save me money for years to come!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! The Herm Sprenger Revolving Hole Punch is the best hole punch I've ever used! It gives you a clean punch with your leather items ever time. It is well worth the money!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a relief! I had always struggled with the hole punch we had at my barn, sometimes it would take even half an hour just to punch a hole in a flash! (not to mention all the wasted energy and frustration) I got the Herm Sprenger Revolving Hole Punch and it is probably some of the best money I have spent. It is super easy to use, so much so that it made me look for things to punch more holes in! I'm going to have to hide mine at the barn to make sure it doesn't disappear!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from who would have thought I'd love a hole punch?! I like to punch holes about as much as the next person-- not much! But this guy changes everything. It's pricey, but well worth it. Everyone who tries it is amazed at how quickly and easily it punches perfect holes. I have to be careful to tuck it away afterwards so it doesn't walk away! :) All kidding aside, this is the best hole punch out there and it will be the only one I use!
    Date published: 2008-03-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! This the most amazing hole punch. EVERYONE at the barn was gathered around me as I punched away! I was actually LOOKING for things to punch just so I could use it more! You get what you pay for and this is a great indispensable buy!
    Date published: 2006-06-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was so easy! I was dreading having to shorten the stirrups on my new saddle. My old hole punch hurt my hands and left messy, unaligned 'half holes' I had to poke out with a knife point. My new Herm Sprenger arrived Friday, and Saturday after I punched the first hole, I called everyone over to watch this: One handed, click, click and I was done. Even the barn people with way more experience than me were impressed, and now everyone wants one for Christmas. (Meanwhile they can borrow mine.) I strongly recommend this one, you will not be sorry.
